There are plenty of swaps to customize this dish to fit your needs. To start, you’ll need two cans (or about 3 cups) of white beans. You can use Great Northern, cannellini, or even garbanzo beans. You’ll also need a 32-ounce carton of organic stock or broth (chicken or vegetable). Dice up an onion and a few cloves of garlic (I like a few extra), and throw in a few handfuls of something green (spinach, chard, kale, etc.) and a bit of seasoning and you’re good to go.
You can definitely add some sliced up Italian sausage, shredded chicken, ground turkey, cooked pasta, etc. to make it an even heartier meal.

In a medium-ish stockpot, sauté onion in a bit of olive or avocado oil.
Add in garlic and cook about a minute. Pour in the stock, beans, and Italian seasoning. Bring to a light boil and then reduce heat to a simmer.
Add in spinach and stir around till it’s wilted (you may choose to cover to speed this up). If you’re using kale, it may take a few extra minutes to soften.
Sprinkle in salt and pepper to taste.
Optional: Parmesan cheese for topping and crusty bread for sopping. 🙂
